Here is my best explanation:

'fruit' is the definition.
(orange is a kind of fruit)

'love assortment' is the wordplay.
'love' becomes 'o' (In tennis, 'love' means 'zero').
'assortment' becomes 'range' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should believe this answer much more).
'o'+'range'='ORANGE'
