A colourful note:  peach is a delicate colour, named after the pale internal flesh of a peach fruit.  The first recorded use of this name as a colour in English dates right back to 1588.

This shade appeared as a Crayola crayon in 1903, known as Flesh, but it was renamed as Peach in 1962, probably for social reasons.

It is an important colour in Chinese culture, where the Peach Tree of Immortality, which blooms only once every 3,000 years, is an important concept in the mythology of the Taoist religion.
