Are oranges named orange because they're orange or is orange called orange because oranges are orange?

The color orange was called geoluhread because oranges weren't known in the English speaking part of the world until a few centuries ago.

The color was named after the fruit, I think.

I believe that is true but most people would think the other way around.

The words supposedly comes from the Sanskrit word for the fruit tree
