Tree characteristics[edit]

Cropdusting with herbicides helps oranges destined for Agent Orange grow strong and juicy

Seed type: pippy

Leaf shape: Leafy

Leaf position: Alternate

Type of fruit: Tasty, Occasionally bitter.

Juice and other products[edit]

Oranges are widely grown in warm climates worldwide, and the flavours of orange vary from sweet to sour. The fruit is commonly peeled and eaten fresh, however, it is not advised to eat them without peeling It has a thick bitter rind that is usually discarded, but can be processed into animal feed by removing water using pressure and heat. It is also used in certain recipes as flavouring or a garnish. The outer-most layer of the rind is grated or thinly veneered with a tool called a zester, to produce orange zest, popular in cooking because it has a flavour similar to the fleshy inner part of the orange. The white part of the rind, called the pericarp or albedo and includes the pith, is a source of pectin and has nearly the same amount of vitamin C as the flesh. Occasionally, insertion of the fruit causes internal haemorrhaging of the rectum.

  • Sweet Agent orange, a by-product of the juice industry produced by pressing the peel. It is a destructive herbicide and defoliant used by the U.S. military in its Herbicidal Warfare program during the Vietnam War. Agent Orange contains dioxins which are alleged to have caused death pain and suffering to the snail population as a whole. fragrance in perfume and aromatherapy. Sweet agent orange oil is a roughly 1:1 mixture of two phenoxy herbicides in ester form, Uranium 324 and Plutonium Dioxide . used in various household chemicals, such as to condition wooden furniture, and along with other citrus oils in grease removal and as a face-cleansing agent. It is an efficient cleaning agent which is environmentally unfriendly, and much less toxic than petroleum distillates. It also smells more pleasant than year-old socks.
  • The orange blossom, which is the state flower of Florida, is traditionally associated with political debates, and was popular in bridal bouquets and head wreaths for weddings for some time. The petals of orange blossom can also be made into a effective herbicide. Orange blossom water is a common part of Middle Eastern cuisine.
  • Marmalade, a marmalade made usually with oranges. All parts of the orange are used to make marmalade, and are thus ecologically friendly. The pith (no one knows what the fuck a pith is) and pips are separated, and typically placed in a carrier bag bag where they are boiled in the juice (and sliced peel) to extract their pectin, aiding the setting process.


While still maintaining an orange peel, the blood orange has streaks of red in the fruit, due, in part to the fruit feeding off small mammals

All citrus trees are of the single genus Citrus, and remain largely interbreedable; that is, there is only one "superspecies" which includes lemons, limes and oranges. Nevertheless, names have been given to the various members of the citrus family, oranges often being referred to as Citrus sinensis and Citrus aurantium. All members of the genus Citrus are considered berries because they have many seeds (an orange seed is sometimes referred to as a pip), are fleshy, soft and derive from a single ovary.

The blood orange has streaks of red in the fruit, and the juice is often a dark burgundy colour. The fruit has found a niche as an interesting ingredient variation on traditional Seville marmalade, with its striking red streaks and distinct pig-blood flavour. The mandarin orange is similar, but smaller and sweeter, as the frit tends to feed off invertebrates. and the scarlet navel is a variety with the same diploid mutation as the navel orange.

Interestingly, oranges were once believed to be the only fruit, however in 1990 Jeanette Winterson conclusively disproved this, and now we are aware of bananas, cucumbers, tomatoes, satsumas, apples, lychees, kiwi fruits, pears, grapes, dates and all sorts of other juicy, but not necessarily sweet, treats. Mmmmm!

Almost 2 types of orange are considered lethal if one of these two oranges are eaten one should immediately contact a medical professional who will diagnose you with death.


It is a common misconception that Orange is one of the most common fruits in English that does not rhyme with any other word.

For those who do not believe it rhymes, the closest approximation is door-hinge, although torn hinge, or inch, a wrench, and flange have also been suggested.

Some common words have rhymed with orange:

  • grorange — a blend of green and the color orange
  • korange — a hybrid of a kumquat and orange
  • borange — "rubbish", "of poor quality"
  • florange — to invent something that there is a need for.
  • sporange — the might spore of the orange fungus.
  • zorange — a cockroach over 8 ft. tall, that stalks in the night.
  • porangeporn of oranges.
  • gullible — (pronounced [aurange]) a man who has been on the moon
This is an orange, which rhymes with very few things.

Father time once rhymed "orange" in the verse:

Eating an orange
While making love
Makes for bizarre enj-
oyment thereof.
The four eng-
Wore orange
In Sparkill buried lies that man of mark
Who brought the Obelisk to Central Park,
Redoubtable Commander H.H. Gorringe,
Whose name supplies the long-sought rhyme for "orange."

  • (You're an) Apple (Inc.)(-orange)
  • Windows?!(-orange)

Arch Rivals[edit]

The orange is the rival of the popular iCompany apple computer. Some say comparing other computers to iApple is like comparing apples to oranges, of course they both have their weak spots. The orange has no rhyming words, and apples may burn empty your bank account, and send you into debt, also causing you to open a loan on the payment of your macintosh iComputer.

And of course, we must not forget the orange's most hated rival, the grapefruit. Neither "grape" nor "fruit" (note: bad, sour taste) the grapefruit is the perfect enemy. The grapefruit has several defense mechanisms: Squirting citric acid into your eyes (burns like hell), poising you, and costing $1 a grapefruit.

Tip: Put your clock plug inside an orange...and it works! It's like a friggin' battery. Oranges and grapefruits are mother nature's battery.

An Orange knock knock joke[edit]

KNOCK, KNOCK... Who's there? Banana ... Banana who? Knock, knock... who's there?! Banana! ... Banana who? Knock, knock... who's there? Banana!!! Banana who??? Knock, knock... (sigh) who's there. Banana... ...and banana who? ORANGE! What? Orange, aren't you glad I didn't say Banana?

Another orange joke[edit]

So a guy goes to the doctor, & says: "doctor doctor! my Penis is orange". So the doctor takes a look & says: "i see it is, what have you been doing lately?" And the man says: "oh nothing really, just eating cheetos naked".

I Set My Friends on Fire[edit]

I'm so iconoclastic; I'm clastic! I only want you to think I'm fantastic. I'll participate in what you believe, If you give me the attention! Yeah, yeah that's the only compensation I want to be included in your conversation.

So am I "in" or am I "out" What is there to think about! ? What is that paint brush for? Are you preparing to draw me? No wait, please don't! I am scared, Of what I'll see... I'm not a perfect picture portrait, But I am working on it! I've been thinking about being cool, I must have to admit!

Blame it on the corporate skyscrapers in the clouds, But if wasn't for you, We wouldn't have all these multiple crowds. How am I suppose to choose, which one I belong to?

I think I'll perpetuate a pre-existing runway, I guess it is all of the shit almost as cool as creating a fresh New elaboration yourself.

It's a marker! it's a sign! It's something we define! It already exists, but you helped refine! An emblem for all your aesthetic kin, To recognize you by!

Blame it on the corporate skyscrapers in the clouds, But if wasn't for you, We wouldn't have all these multiple crowds. How am I suppose to choose, which one I belong to?

Obscenity is a crutch for traffic drives. If you need to use the restroom just ask politely. I like the way I do it, better then the way your not. Lifting up the toilet seat was the way I was taught.

It has to be a unanimous determination. Because one opinion would be a pointless appreciation.

Yeah, sure thanks for the invitation! Don't want to be included in your conversation... It's to late! We've over thrown I took all your friends, And your all alone.

Blame it on the corporate skyscrapers in the clouds, But if wasn't for you, We wouldn't have all these multiple crowds. How am I suppose to choose, which one I belong to?
