We've been enjoying passionfruit while in Australia. Rarely seen in the States (except Hawaii), the passionfruit is commonly used here. We've seen it in yogurt, ice cream, fruit juices, and several desserts. It's also used in a soft drink called Passiona.

The passion fruit has a tart, citrus-like flavor and is filled with small seeds which add crunchy texture to the fruit.  It got its name by New World missionaries who used various parts of the plant and fruit as religious symbols.
