The earliest uses of the word in English refer to the fruit, and the colour was later named after the fruit. Before the English-speaking world was exposed to the fruit, the colour was referred to as "yellow-red" (geoluread in Old English) or "red-yellow". It is claimed that the word orange has no true rhyme.

orange, silver, purple and beige all have rhyming words, it's just that they're not commonly used.

i.e., a "sporange" is an alternate form of sporangium, as in the part of a fern that holds spores.
