I grew four plants last year (2010) and they were the winner of all the varieties I grew for hardiness and taste.
Other varieties grown were Lemon Boy, Brandywine, Amish Paste, Rutgers, Early Girl, Better Boy, Pineapple, San Marzano, Sweet Millions, Yellow Pear, and a couple of others...
Everyone who tried them said they had the best flavor they'd ever had in a tomato.
I grow all organically and I think that helps. There were no pest problems at all. Generally clusters of 4 to 5 fruit about 6-8 oz each... Cooked up into delicious sauce, great for eating out of hand straight, no salt... at least that's what I heard. I don't like tomatoes raw!

I was disappointed in this variety. It barely bloomed, has no fruit, and the plants didn't grow. At the same time, eight other varieties were heavily producing and looking great. I won't grow this variety again.

I was looking forward to this variety and I was let down. It did not do well in my hot/humid climate. The taste was ordinary and the size of the tomatoes was not impressive. Production was decent but overall, I am dissatisfied.

We grew this tomato last year for the first time. It did so well that we're starting it from seed again this year. The plant is hardy and the tomatoes prolific, tasty, and juicy.
'Thessaloniki' also has a tendency to "take over the universe" in a small back yard, but that's okay during tomato season!

Productive, heat tolerant, disease tolereant, & great taste.
A real winner for home or market gardeners.
