The Blossom Family is one of the founding families of Riverdale. They are the largest and oldest family in the town of Riverdale, after coming from an unknown location and settling in Riverdale to create what is now known as the Blossom Maple Farms.
The Blossoms are also related to the Cooper Family, as generations ago the family split in two after one Blossom brother murdered the other. Penelope has referred to their family has been cursed after its known history with the Blossom brother killing the other and Clifford killing his son Jason as she told her daughter Cheryl.
Frustrated by their history of their family killing their own blood relatives, Cheryl took it upon herself to start over with a new beginning. After the death of her father, she burned the Blossom house down to ashes.
Nearly a hundred years ago, the Blossoms founded the Maple Syrup business in Riverdale, which resulted in almost instant success. However, the two Blossom brothers and their families fought one against the other, for their activity of Maple Syrup, this, brought a brother to kill the other. After the murder, one side of the family severed ties with the other and took on a new name - Cooper Family. They also told their children that the Coopers and Blossom were two separate families, with no relation to one another, choosing to conceal their family ties over telling them the truth.
Generations later, Polly Cooper and Jason Blossom, who were unaware that they were related, fell in love. Their relationship was frowned upon by their families, and each did everything they could to break the two up. However, Polly revealed to Jason and her family that she was pregnant. The two got engaged and planned to run away together, get married, and raise their children on a quiet farm far away from Riverdale. Their dream was quickly ended when Polly's parents, Alice and Hal, sent Polly to a group home known as the Sisters of Quiet Mercy. Polly's pregnancy was kept a secret from the Blossom's and the world.
On July 4th, the twins Jason and Cheryl Blossom went for a boat ride on Sweetwater River, that ended disastrously when the boat tipped over and Jason allegedly drowned fetching Cheryl's glove. It wasn't until months later that the truth was revealed when Kevin Keller and Moose Mason discovered Jason's body at Sweetwater River with a bullet in his head, revealing that he did not drown, but had actually been murdered.
After a long investigation, it was revealed that Jason's killer was none other than his own father, Cliff Blossom Another reason that Jason wanted to run away was that the Maple Syrup business was actually a front for drug business, which Clifford was participating in. Clifford killed Jason to prevent him from telling anyone. Upon being discovered, Clifford hung himself in the barn before he could be arrested. Cheryl, being increasingly traumatized after a failed suicide attempt, burned down the Blossom house the next day.

The plan was to row across Sweetwater River on July 4th and drop Jason off at the other side, and afterward, Cheryl would tip the boat over and say that Jason fell into the water and drowned trying to fetch her glove.

The two loved each other, and when Polly told Jason that she was pregnant he was thrilled. They even planned to run away together, get married, and raise their children somewhere far away from Riverdale. However, Jason needed money to do so, and went to the Southside Serpents to strike a dead; he would drive and deliver weed in exchange for money. Jason's sister Cheryl would row him across Sweetwater River and then claimed that he drowned. In the meantime, Jason would get into a getaway car and leave town with Polly. But, after the Serpents realized who Jason was, they kidnapped him before he could reach the car and planned to hold him for ransom.
