A fruit known as amla in certain parts of Asia is an excellent source of vitamin C. A small quantity of the fruit grated and added to salads provides almost all the daily requirement of this vitamin. However, the fruit is very sour. A new process designed to remove most of the sour taste will make the fruit acceptable to American tastes. We are therefore starting to grow this fruit for sale in the United States.

The argument above assumes all of the following except

A. Americans generally won't eat very sour foods
B. The new process does not remove a significant part of the vitamin content
C. That a market exists for a new source of vitamin C
D. The fruit can be used only in salads
E. Apart from being sour there are no other objections to eating this fruit

IMHO D.
Negating this doesn't break the conclusion

I am confused why "C" is wrong?

If there is a market that exist for "a new source of vitamin C" then Americans might not accept Amla over "a new source".
Clearly this is something that author did not assume while concluding that the processed Amla will be acceptable by Americans.

Pls consider a situation where the market for vitamin c related food product is saturated in US. If we are to take an Asia based Amla onto a saturated market for Vitamin C then it cannot be sold in the US.

Now trying the negation approach, if there is no market for new vitamin based products then we cannot grow Amla in US and sustain the produce which breaks the conclusion. Therefore C is a valid assumption.

If there is another source of vitamin C that provides the same amount of Vitamin c exists then Americans may not prefer using this source at all. for the conclusion to be true we need to assume that the market for this exists and that the Americans will buy Amla .
