(from wikipedia) -- "the orange is a hybrid of ancient cultivated origin, possibly between pomelo and tangerine ..... the plant originated in southeast asia. the name is thought to ultimately derive from possibly the telugu naannja or or tamil naram, the names of the tree in the respective languages." [perhaps the language origin explains why we have no words that rhyme with orange?] click on images to enlarge.
