Although there are lots of flowering vines that will grow in the shade, I can't think of a single vine that will produce fruit in a shady spot. Grapes won't produce, neither will kiwi or even passionflower vine. But, there are still lots of choices if you simply want an attractive vine. Here's a publication listing dozens of potential candidates: http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/MG097

Hope you find just the right vining plant for your yard.
