Picture of first year seedling. I posted the picture only because the subject was peach and if this one continues to look good it may have future. The plant was not very tall an we will see how well it grows.

That's a great color. Other than to save wear and tear on the back (becoming more of a factor as the years pass), plant height is not so important if the stems are long. Tall plants require more labor to keep under control so a very tall plant is not always desirable. For me, 4.5 - 5 foot tall varieties seem to meet the balance between ease-of-harvest and ease-of-staking.
