peach is mersika

mersika = peach (noun) (some things Google found for "mersika": a rare term; user names; a rare last name; interior designs by Karin Mersika; Mersika coffee brand logo design)

Word derivation for "peach" :
Basque = mertxika, Finnish = persikka
Miresua = mersika

In this seven-letter word, there are five letters in common between the Basque and the Finnish words. I considered, but decided not to use the tx from the Basque word. Perhaps I liked this letter combination because it's somewhat similar to my name, Mariska, which is actually my middle name.
