of or pertaining to the planet Earth or its inhabitants
Originally as a standard term, in non-SF contexts: OED has examples from the sixteenth century.
This is Earthish, this drink?
A Martian sent to Earth would conclude we speak a variety of dialects…of a single Earthish tongue.
Also, I am counting on everyone living on the moon by the time my children are teenagers, and that they’ll have really interesting space friends who are kind and good students and think drugs are lame and ‘totally, like, Earthish.’

In the compilation of some entries, HDSF has drawn extensively on corresponding entries in OED.
