Passion fruit. The first couple sets of leaves look like that. Then it starts developing more of a maple leaf look to it.

No. But seedling passion fruits are fine.

That's a passion fruit (maracuja) seedling.  They come very close to the mother vine/fruit.  I grow a large yellow variety from Brazil.
