Do all plant cells have chromosomes?

Do all plant cells have chromosomes? Trivial question, I was just watching leaves fall from an apple tree an the question came to me.

Thinking about this I am reminded of an exception in zoology; some RBCs don't have nuclei and hence no chromosomes.

All living plant cells have nuclei hence chromosomes. Mature xylem cells lose their contents and become one hundred percent functional in terms of structural support and passive transport. Mature xylem is considered non-living.
