Was the one you had a cling or a freestone?  Johnson Nursery sells the Indian Blood Cling & Bay Laurel Nursery sells the Indian Blood Free (&  the cling, too) .  Both ripen late & are delicious although somewhat different in flavor.

Many years ago I grew a late maturing peach with blood red flesh.  The 
outside of the fruit was an unattractive dull, dark red and the fruit 
were on the small size, but its flavor/taste was exceptional.

I grew the peach from seed and according to the person from whom I 
obtained it, it came true from seed. My experience would tend to support 
this claim.

Does anyone grow this peach?
