The fruit and then the colour was probably given according to the colour of the fruit... methinks.

OK I voted incorrectly. My bf has pointed out the error of my ways.

Clearly the colour came first because the electromagnetic spectrum has been around since the Big Bang and thus the colour came first.
Yes that's why I voted for the colour- although the fruit is still strangely in the lead.

I think most people are probably voting on what was named orange first and not what existed first.

Or, wrongly, on what first came into their head – how many people think of the colour when you say ‘orange’? Everyone thinks of the fruit.

Linguistically, the word orange must have come after the orange had been discovered (and known as to be food). Perhaps because "orange" depicts the colour and the fruit at the same time.

That could be a way to interpret the thread.

Scientifically, the "colour" orange as a mixture of red/yellow or as an individual colour must have an astronomic basis as shown somewhere in this thread.

Anyway I'm off drinking orange juice.

I should think the plant species was around before the word.
