I thought the plural of संतर was simply संतर. Is it संतरे in this case because the orange is an object in the sentence?

The singular is संतरा. By the normal rule for masculine nouns ending in ा, the plural is संतरे.

Also, संतरे is not in the oblique case in this sentence because it is the direct object of the verb खाना.
