Cheek cells would" need " more, as onion cells are plant cells, that contain chloroplasts. Was this a trick question? If so, not much of a trick.
PS then root cells of the onion, would have more, as they would have a need for more. They are growing root cells.
The green stalks of onions have more than negligible chloroplasts.
mitochondria is considered to be the power house of the cells.its associated with the production of ATP which is the energy carrier.therefore any cells that are associated with the movement will require a lot of mitochondria. i.e. muscle cells, brain cells etc.
