When you do a full-nutrient analysis with the extension, you tell them what the issues are (no fruit) and they will give you the results of your analysis PLUS recommendations on what to do to remediate your problem (assuming there is one). Again, you want not just pH but also full nutrient analysis, so read the instructions carefully so you give just the right sample collected in the correct manner (usually an aggregate of samples collected from various spots within the garden). If you are in NY State, for instance, you might use the Cornell Lab, which has a whole site on the matter of testing including this page: http://cnal.cals.cornell.edu/forms/soiltestkit.aspx
