fruit bearing evergreen to screen

rkwday(7B)January 10, 2014

I am slowly changing my yard from the traditional grass/bush concept to food producers. I have a lattice type fence that currently has jasmine growing on it that I would like to remove. It provides a nice year round screen to a part of my back yard. My question is this: does a bush or vine exist that does not lose its leaves in winter that also produces something edible? I really need to maintain a year round screen.

Thanks!

Oregon Grape (Mahonia aquifolium)
Rosemary
California huckleberry (Vaccinium ovatum)
evergreen salal (Gaultheria shallon)

More groundcovers, but Bearberry (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) and Wintergreen (Gaultheria procumbens).

Some species of yew produce edible berries. (WARNING...others are poisonous)
