Is this a fruit? What is it?

I found a climbing bush on a fence in N. Portland. I have lived here my entire life and have never seen anything like it. The harvest or the fruit maybe that it puts off look like loquats almost. Can you Identify?

It would help if we could see the foliage and flower of the vine, but I'm not sure we can advise that they are edible. It may be the fruit of the passion flower. It is related to the same vine that produces passion fruit in the tropics, but I wouldn't recommend eating it.
