Sorry! The OED is the Oxford English Dictionary (one of the best sources
for word history). I copied the definition out of our electronic
subscription, but it's only available as a subscription database online.
Many big libraries have the OED in print, and I think there was a CD-ROM
version too.

What are you looking to find out about oranges? Sweet vs. Sour oranges and
when the sweet ones came into use?
