From the Dwarf Project description:
Dwarf Sarah’s Red (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 Sarah’s Red, selecting and naming the new variety. Bill Minkey produced the release quantity of seed. Regular leaf dwarf, 4-10 oz round to squarish red fruit, high yielding and with a nice balanced flavor.
