Evergreen edible privacy screen options?

last year

Coastal bay area zone 9b/10a, sunset 16. Our low temps are 30-35 degrees, we do get mild frost here and there between late December to early February. Highs are 90-95. I have clay soil but it has broken down considerably after I mulched it heavily. The area in question gets a full day of western exposure sun in the winter and in the summer, sun until 4pm.

I have a narrow area against my fence with an odd neighbor and I need to plant a privacy screen here that reaches about 8-10 feet. I would like to plant something edible, evergreen, and something that doesn't take forever to reach that height. I also do not have a lot of width here. Does anyone have any ideas for what I can grow?
