Just remember we are using the "de" because here "naranja" is being used as a noun, not an adjective. We want the juice because it is made of oranges, not because it is orange.

    Just for anyone seeing this comment and wondering the same thing, "porfa" is a colloquialism for "por favor" according to SpanishDict.

    Just in case you're wondering why, it's because oranges are a cross bred fruit that was first developed in China. So it's kind of like Canadian Bacon or French Fries. Though I guess the fries were introduced to US by French speaking Belgians :-)

    Thanks for the explanation, I didn't know that. What I do know as a Belgian is that fries are indeed Belgian :-P But apparently the way they are cut is called "french"

    Yeah, because it's the juice of an orange, not an orange-colored juice.

    Can you say, "Un jugo naranja, por favor?" to translate directly in English to be orange juice?

    2 weeks ago

    https://www.duolingo.com/JadePeriit

    What is jugo? Is that for juice? And does it come before orange because orange is an adjective?
