A comparison of oranges and oranges occurs when two items or groups of items are compared that cannot be practically told apart.

The idiom, comparing oranges and oranges, refers to the apparent similarities between items which are popularly thought to be incomparable or incommensurable, such as oranges and oranges. The idiom may also be used to indicate that a false analogy has been made between two items, such as where an orange is faulted for not being a good orange (or sculpture).
