Does this look like a peach seedling?

I realize seedlings aren't to easy to identify, but do these look like peaches?

I work at an orchard and found them under some peach trees. I figured they were peaches, until I saw something else under the trees that looks more like the trees above. Ive noticed peach trees have little red strand things that spiral around the leaf stems. Can anyone picture what I'm talking about? And the picture above doesn't have them, but the other plant I was talking about earlier did.

The orchard has apples, cherries, peaches, apricots, plums, nectarines

Not peaches. Almost look like apple to me. Peaches have long thin leaves, or at least all the seedlings i've come across do.

Doesn't look like a peach to me either. Could be anything. Wait and see.

Yeah apple was my second guess.. I just wasn't sure cause I the leafs seemed thinner. But your right, they could be anything. Its just these peaches that I found them under were no where near the apples. Maybe they're cherries? Cause a bird could've easily eaten one and dropped the seeds out the read. And its not like a bird ate an apple.
