Hi all,

Ive sowed some radicchio in a container and it's beginning to sprout.

Anyone grown this before? Will I need to thin?

You got better germination than me. I tried it a few years back and got nothing, so I am not experienced, but Google says between eight and twelve inches apart

With most crops like this, I recommend eat as you thin, but this does not work for radicchio as you have to use the outer leaves to blanch the inner ones.
So thin to twelve inches (30cm) apart either way.
You can still start to take them a little early, but this really is a crop for successional sowing.

Sorry, I didn't mean right there & then in the garden, but using thinnings like onions cabbage etc. which you pull out when thinning, in the kitchen.

I've thinned out and kept the young leaves. If I wash them maybe they will taste OK!
