or just 


array_rand([$orange, $apple]);

 

array_rand only returns the key (or keys) of the randomly selected items. So, that line would only return a 0 or 1 - which is not helpful without the original array to get the value from. It makes more sense to create an array as a variable first, the use array rand to get the value like so:

$values = ['orange', 'apple'];
$randomValue = $values[array_rand($values)];
