From the Dwarf Tomato Project description:
Dwarf Bendigo Blush (Snowy family) – 65 days – The Snowy family was created by Ray South in 2009 by crossing Snow White Cherry with a red F2 selection from the Sleepy line. Dwarf Bendigo Blush was selected and named by Gregg Muller. He and Susan Oliverson carried out the majority of the subsequent work, aided by Craig LeHoullier and Amanda Fischer. Bill Minkey generated the release sample of seed. Potato leaf dwarf that gives prolific quantities of 1-2 oz pink oval cherry type fruit with a sweet, well balanced delicious flavor.

From Bill Minkey’s notes: Dwarf Bendigo Blush – Potato leaf.  1-2 oz. pink oval cherry. Excellent yield and excellent flavor.
