Chaenomeles cathayensis is a species of flowering plant in the rose family. It is native to China,[1] Bhutan, and Myanmar.[2] In Chinese, its common name is mùguā hǎitáng (木瓜海棠) or máo yè mùguā (毛叶木瓜).

This is a thorny deciduous shrub or tree growing up to 6 meters tall. The leaves are pointed, often toothed, and oval to lance-shaped. They are woolly-haired on the undersides, at least when new. The pink or white bell-shaped flowers are up to 4 centimeters wide. The fruit is a fragrant yellow-red pome 6 or 7 centimeters wide.[1]
