some oranges are green in the peel - but the fruit inside is orange. I do not know what we would call them if not orange, I suppose it would depend on what came first the color called orange or the fruit called orange in this language. the spanish call the orange naranja, which is not the same as the color orange. perhaps theirs is a better way to name it.
