Can you tell mean if this word means the color orange? jònabriko Found it in the book "Haitian Creole in 10 Steps" by Roger Sabain, spelled jònabriko. The closest I could come to understanding it was to spell it jòn abriko, it was translated as amber on the interent. What exactly does it mean?

Yes, it does mean orange.

“jonn” or “jòn” of course translates the color yellow.
“abriko” or “zabriko” is what Haitians call the fruit mamey or the tropical apricot
 
So jònabriko or jòn zabriko means apricot yellow or as yellow as an apricot.
