From the Dwarf project description:

Dwarf Egypt Yellow (Sneaky family) – 75 days – Patrina Nuske Small created the Sneaky family by crossing an F3 selection of Kangaroo Paw Red with Grozny 91 in 2008. Susan Oliverson was the major volunteer contributor to Dwarf Egypt Yellow, selecting and naming the new variety. Bill Minkey produced the release quantity of seed. Regular leaf dwarf, 6-12 oz bright yellow round fruit, very good balanced flavor, very good yield.
