"Knock, knock.
Who’s there?
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn’t say banana?"
- Classic children’s joke

Oranges are a citrus fruit. They originated in China as a cross between a mandarin (often called a mandarin orange) and a grapefruit.

They have become a symbol of the state of Florida in the United States due to the large number of oranges produced there.

In fact, many visitor centers offer samples of orange juice to incoming guests. Oranges also represent preparing for cold and flu season as they are extremely high in vitamin C.

It is said that there is no word that rhymes with orange. The Nickelodeon comedy series Drake and Josh may have proven this assumption wrong, however. When writing a song, Drake rhymes “orange” with “door hinge.”

The word "orange" is derived from the Sanskrit word for the same tree. The word was first used to describe the color during the 1500s.

Oranges also play a role as personified characters in popular culture. One example is the Annoying Orange,

a comedy web series. The popular Shopkins collectible series includes characters such as Juicy Orange and Annie Orange.
