Tomato seeds are green because they contain photosynthetic chlorophyll, which is the pigment in plants that provides them their green color. Chlorophyll is vital in the development of photosynthesis because it allows plants to absorb energy from light. It is responsible for the tomato’s appearance on the inside.

Even when inside a tomato, seeds continue to absorb light. As seeds develop, their outer shells harden to preserve the inner embryo. Tomato seeds are suitable when they are a beige like color. Green seeds are not very likely to turn ripe.

Color of seeds is one variable that gardeners use to verify whether or not seeds are mature enough to germinate. A tomato is ready for seed saving when it is ripe and ready to eat. If the fruit is under-ripe, you may obtain a few edible seeds.

Not all seeds are green. There are some seeds that actually come in a wide variety of colors. For example, the seed of the watermelon is dark. It can be brown, but at times, it would be almost black. The seeds of the pumpkin are color white, although when you cook the pumpkin seeds, the one that is inside is color green.

The seed color of different fruits and vegetables differ greatly. Some seeds that are color green are colored green because of the chlorophyll content. Green seeds are known to be recessive over yellow seeds, which are considered to be more common of the two.
