Thanks... We have similar weather and no fruit after about 8 years.
I was about to order some more bushes and try some experiments.

Pacific Northwest Springs might be:
 * Most stone fruit (peaches, plums, apricots, etc.)
   are impacted by our cool springs.
 * Pears and apples have good and bad years.  The good years
   are very good and the bad years impact selected plants.
 * Grapes always grow strongly but long cool springs sometimes
   impact sweetness.
 * The kiwi must be niche sensitive.  Our issai does great but
   is reported marginal by others.  The fuzzy kiwi's have
   frost problems at times.
 * The Desert King fig is dependable.
 * Persimmons grow but the fruit has trouble ripening.
 * Paw Paw are dependable
