NPR Sunday Puzzle (May 6): Knock, Knock... Who's There?

NPR Sunday Puzzle (May 6): Knock, Knock... Who's There?:
Q: Think of a six-letter plural word naming a certain category of foods. Change the first letter to a 'C,' then re-arrange the result to get an adjective that describes many of these foods. What is it?
The important letter in the clue is 'C'... Aren't you glad I'm here to give you clues?

Edit: Remember this old Knock, Knock joke?
"Knock, knock" Who's There?
"Banana" Banana Who?
"Knock, knock" Who's There?
"Banana" Banana Who?
"Knock, knock" Who's There?
"Banana" Banana Who?
"Knock, knock" Who's There?
"Orange" Orange Who?
"Aren't you glad I stopped saying Banana?"

The other clue was the letter C, as in vitamin C which is prevalent in citrus fruits.

A: FRUITS +C-F --> CITRUS
