If you notice, of course, around us there are so many vegetables and also fruits that have different colors from one another. But dude, do you ever think about why vegetables and fruits can have a different color?
Maybe we’re just thinking that fruits or vegetables that have bright colors and a different one with the other is as a trimmer appearance. But it turns out that the colors of vegetables and fruit.
has the benefit of a functional and/or different from one another. In addition to the vegetables and the fruit turns out there are several types of plants that other which is also no mean alone of all that color.
Well, fellas all, the difference in the color of the plant turns relating to the color pigments of the plant itself, it is this that causes the color is different. As for the few Kinds of Color Pigment in Plants that, among others, are as follows :
the Pigment color of the first is the function of chlorophyll. From the name alone we already know yeah buddy that pigment this one has the color green. Chlorophyll itself is pigment main for the plants so that the prices of photosynthesis in the plant itself can occur.
pigment chlorophyll itself is produced in the chloroplasts on the network photosynthesis that is located on the leaves. Chlorophyll itself can channel the energy derived from sunlight to be utilized by the plant. The energy absorbed by chlorophyll is the energy with the blue and red wavelengths that will be absorbed by the chlorophyll of the.
the color Pigment the second is carotenoid almost the same with the hormone ethylene gas. Adpaun carotenoid pigment is a pigment which is generally colored red, orange or yellow. The pigment that is included in the types of carotenoids carotene, namely a dyestuff which gives color on the carrots.
Carotenoids also include the pigment contained in the cell membrane, namely on the membrane of the chloroplast. Carotenoid pigments include pigments which are not soluble in water, therefore these pigments are
on a membrane in the cell, i.e. on the membrane of the chloroplast. However, carotenoid pigments are not such as chlorophyll, because these carotenoids can not transfer energy would be absorbed directly in the process of photosynthesis.
the color Pigment of which the third is anthocyanin or hormones jasmonates. Different from chlorophyll and carotenoids, anthocyanin is a pigment that is soluble in water. These pigments are produced in the cytoplasm and are also stored in the vacuole. This pigment itself is tinted pink and is usually seen at and
flowers, fruits colored red ( let’s call it like an apple), and also the leaves we often encounter in the fall. In addition, anthocyanin also will absorb energy at the wavelength of blue and green. Therefore, for the eye of the beholder, anthocyanin will have a red or reddish color.
– Other Pigments
Pigment a fourth color is a pigment type other. As for the pigments, this one is one pigment that is not found in higher plants. However, this pigment contained in plants that such low levels of algae referred to as fikobilin.
