There is in fact a word that rhymes with orange. It’s sporange: a rare alternative form of sporangium, a botany term that means “spore case.”

According to Wikipedia:

A sporangium is an enclosure in which spores are formed. It can be composed of a single cell or can be multicellular. All plants, fungi, and many other lineages form sporangia at some point in their life cycle.
