    Well, it falls between the colors of red and yellow on the prism or color wheel. Red and yellow are it's contributory primary colors (orange is a secondary color) so I guess technically you would call it reddish yellow. A yellowish red would make it too strong tending toward red - like rust red not anything like an orange color. Paint manufacturers call orange, orange - like "Cadmium Orange". Even though it is the name of a fruit that's what they call it.
