Looking for Indian Blood Peaches

Dear Bay Weekly:

For a German recipe, I’m looking for a special kind of peach, called Indian Blood or Cherokee or black cling. It’s supposedly bloody red in both flesh and exterior and can grow up to 12 inches in diameter. I believe it’s a late peach, ripe in late August or September. I’ve looked at farmers’ markets and called the Bay Gardener, The University of Maryland Cooperative Extension Service and various peach growers with no success. If your readers can direct me to a source, I’d be very grateful.
