Garden Leader Monster tomato

I grew this in 2018, and loved eating it. The taste isn't extremely surprising or anything, but it's a really good tomato to eat. Unfortunately, I didn't save seeds from it that year (since I was fatigued and I didn't plan to regrow it at the time, for production reasons; I'm hoping it's more prolific this year, however).

Yes, this breed is true-to-type. It's not an F1 hybrid like the Garden Leader Monster watermelon is.

Here's my plant, this year, so far. I just thinned it, today:

Okay, I managed to find the Garden Leader Monster tomato plant and a number of ripe tomatoes on it. Insurance_1 and Moneymaker were covering it.

Unlike the last time I grew them, the fruits this year were mealy, without much flavor (they were excellent in taste and texture before). So, not terribly exciting, this year. That could be due to the lack of sunlight (due to other plants covering it) and the three handfuls of wood ash that I gave it (it may require less potassium and/or calcium for optimal taste/texture; I didn't give it wood ash the first time).

Nevertheless I saved a plentiful amount of seeds from each of three fruits (of varying degrees of ripeness), separately. The fruits ripened red. Here they are:
