Of Beete.

Beete, is a Gardain Herbe, and in good plentie with us. Therof are said to be two kinds the one white, and the other black: both micinable. Aristotle saith that upon his roote (as upon any stock) any yong set or slip maye be set and graft, and through the roote his good liking in growth, may be brought from his owne nature into naturall parentage with the Tree.
