Facts about orange

The word orange itself was introduced to English through the Spanish word “naranja”, which came from the Sanskrit word naranga, which literally means “orange tree”.
The English dropped the leading “n” and eventually we got the word “orange”.
It was around the early 16th century that the word orange gradually started being used to not only refer to the fruit, but also to the color which was referred to earlier as “geoluhread”, which translates to “yellow-red”.
