I would like a list of things/items that are orange.  I would prefer
it to be items that are always orange, like oranges, tangerines,
pumpkins, carrots, etc.  As opposed to things that sometimes can be
orange like shovels, paper, cats, ets.

Hi baybei...

How many items would you like in the list?

Since color is subjective would you mind
picking your color-range for "orange" from
a chart like this:
[ ]

That will eliminate any yes it is, no it isn't

Just to point out... as per your own requirement
to list things that are always orange... you had
fruit for example, which... aren't always orange.
Oranges are green when growing sometimes becoming
yellow, orange color is one stage, then they get
pretty black. Same with most other fruits and
veggies, like Habaneros. So, transitional items 
are fine?

Can we list cheddar cheese which has white varieties?

Safety cones, safety signs, anything safety like
lifevests or flotation devices?

Do you want obscure items like the cap on Proventil 

Arm & Hammer boxes? Which are 'mostly orange' by
[ ]

What about things like flowers? Roses are not only
red, but a wide rainbow of colors including orange.
Mine are blooming right now =) There are also orange
sunflowers, poppies, pansies and begonias.

Would you mind refining your requirements?

As many items as you can list is fine.  I don't have a set limit on
the items on the list.  Transitional items are fine as long as at some
point they are orange.  For the color range from the chart you
provided, PMS1485-Orange021 (there are four shade in that row). 
PMS151, PMS158, PMS1585 and PMS165 are all in the basic range I am
looking for.  Anything like cheddar cheese that can be yellow or
another color is fine as well.  I would prefer not to have safety type
things and things that are mostly orange listed.  Obscure items and
flowers are fine.  I hope this helps clear up what I was asking for a
