chéng - orange (tree or colour)

Victoria taught me this word during lunch in a pub in Mount Batton today. I hadn't learnt this word before, either for the colour or the fruit. I had learnt the word 桔子, which apparently means 'tangerine'. Close enough. Although, in the sentence below, 橙 seems to mean lime.

这酸橙咖喱菜非常辣。
This lime curry is particularly hot .
