Needs to be reformatted - any volunteers? -- Paul G 14:56, 17 Feb 2004 (UTC)

OK, I had a go at it. In the original entry, the intransitive verb was listed as obsolete, but not the transitive. Anyone know if that's intentional? -- Ortonmc 20:01, 17 Feb 2004 (UTC)

Rfv-sense: "Particularly pleasing or agreeable.". "Peachy" maybe. I don't see any evidence that something agreeable can be "very peach" or "more peach" or any other common adjectival collocations. DTLHS (talk) 20:59, 19 May 2016 (UTC)

Neither of Siuenti's examples are "durably archived". DCDuring TALK 10:30, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I finally found two more durably archived quotes (it takes a long time to sort through all the more common meanings of peach). This is now cited. Kiwima (talk) 00:00, 26 April 2017 (UTC)
