I recently exported 5 pictures from Aperture of plants. They were all D70 Raw files and I exported them to jpeg. I then imported these files into iPhoto on a different account on the same computer, and to me it seems the colours on the pictures are bit washed out. Should there be a difference between the colour of the RAW files and the JPEG's?

I don't really know about the iPhoto vs. AP color issue, but in the Lightroom forums, the usual explanation for color differences between a LR image and an exported jpg is monitor calibration.  Have you calibrated your monitor?  Oh, another frequent reason is a corrupted monitor profile.

Sounds like you're exporting the file into different color spaces. Go to Export presets and check what color space you're using for each of the file formats.

I think color spaces OR monitor calibration could easily be the issue. Make sure both accounts on your computer are set up with the same color profile, and try to figure out which color space Aperture is exporting to (perhaps try sRGB for most flexibility)

IMHO I know why it is so in Lightroom and it will be the same in Aperture.

JPEGs processed using camera color processor and the colors are great. RAW have a JPEG inside which Lightroom shows for a second so the RAW looks the same but then the colors are fades and this means that Lightroom (or Aperture) read RAW data and tried to represent it how they feel they should. Mostly Nikon do better job then Lightroom, so the colors of JPEGs or TIFFs are better then RAW in these converters.

Garden (name?)
You're right that each rendering engine will preform differently. the new Lightroom and ACR have a profile that much more closely matches the manufacturer's profile.
