A discussion of the difference between the color orange (the color halfway between red and yellow, shown below as color wheel orange) and the color orange peel (the actual color of the outer skin of an orange), may be found in Maerz and Paul. Orange peel is the color halfway between orange (color wheel) and amber on the color wheel.
The first recorded use of orange peel as a color name in English was in 1839.
