Ive just shown this to an native indonesian speaker and even they were confused. I think the colour and fruit name are mixed up!

It's not a mix up, but I do agree that it's a bit confusing at first. Just change the original English sentence, "That orange fruit is called orange by us." → "That fruit that is orange is called orange by us." → "Buah yang berwarna oranye itu disebut jeruk oleh kami."

We call that orange-colored fruit an orange -> Kami menyebut buah orange itu jeruk.
