From the Dwarf Project description:

Dwarf Bendigo Moon (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 Moon was selected and named by Gregg Muller. He and Susan Oliverson carried out the majority of the subsequent work, aided by Craig LeHoullier. Bill Minkey generated the release sample of seed. Regular leaf dwarf that produces 1-2 oz oval (slightly pointed on the blossom end) cherry fruit with an ivory color. Yield and flavor are excellent.
