The flesh of the peach fruit, depending on the variety of peach, can be peach colored, or more pale, or more yellow-orange as here.
Peach is a color that is named for the pale color of the exterior flesh of the peach fruit. Like the color apricot, the color called peach is paler than most actual peach fruits and seems to have been formulated (like the color apricot) primarily to create a pastel palette of colors for interior design. Peach can also be described as a pale, yellowish-pink.
The etymology of the color peach (and the fruit): the word comes from the Middle Englishpeche, derived from Middle French, in turn derived from Latinpersica, i.e., the fruit from Persia. In actuality, the ultimate origin of the peach fruit was from China.
