Card in Orange is a Card to Impossible Location routine.

The French conjurer, Bernard Marius Cazeneuve was performing it in the 1800s, along with a number of popular tricks with oranges and other fruits. He would allow a lady to draw a card, which was torn and placed in his pistol. He would then bring forward two oranges and have one selected. After shooting at it he would take a knife and cut the orange into two halves. The previously selected card would be found in the orange.[1]
