before orange was called orange it was called haugh. the reason for this is because a slave (who was Harriet Tubman's best friend) named Karen Haugh discovered the orange whil…e working in a fruit plantation in 1763.

Answer The word 'orange', for the fruit, seems to originate from an evolution of the Arabic, naranj; the Persian, narang; appearing in Latin as pomum de orenge (fruit of desire), in old French as orenge and Venetian as naranza.

Naval Oranges are indeed seedless. The naval end of a naval orange is a "conjoined" twin making the whole orange sterile as soon as the flower starts to fruit. Thus no…t making any seeds. Also the only way to grow a naval orange tree is by grafting a naval orange branch onto another citrus tree, or from growing a plant from a naval orange root stock.
