Got this in an exotic tropical fruit basket, been searching for close to an hour online with no luck. It's quite hard and firm, the color is red-purplish with white specks. Hesitant to cut into it since I doubt it's ready to eat being so hard.

Agree a Passion fruit, Passiflora edulis, it come in purplish and yellow form, the skin is hard when ripe, bit that is already ripe for sure, post ripe it will softer and crinkled. insode should be yellow-orangish, and bit sour, I love them for drinks.

The taste of passion fruit is defintely unique and distinctive.
Its not a blend or combination of "anything". It could best described as orangey and tangeriney , but doesnt quite capture it properly...
