Did the color orange get it's name by the fruit orange,or did the fruit orange get it's name by the color orange?
since the fruit is called an orange, I think that who ever thought this would make a good color, decided to name the color the same as the fruit... confusing?
I think the fruit got it's name from the color. How else would European painters color their work orange?
You lost me!
It could be some of both. However, I personally think that the color would have existed before the fruit... or at least the name for it.
