Love selection of fruit (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

orange

Here is my best explanation:

'fruit' is the definition.

(orange is a kind of fruit)

'love selection' is the subsidiary indication.

'love' becomes 'o' (In tennis, 'love' means 'zero').

'selection' becomes 'range' (I've seen this before).

'o'+'range'='orange'

'of' is the link.

(Other definitions for orange that I've seen before include "Go earn the fruit", "Colour of an order", "A rainbow colour", "Fruit; pigment", "Order of the North", "Belisha beacon colour", "Go near (anag) - fruit", "Name of reigning house of the Netherlands", "Colour of Northern Ireland unionism" and "Fruit - part of the spectrum".)
