Eriobotrya is a genus of about ten species of large evergreen shrubs and small trees in the family Rosaceae, native to east and southeast Asia.


By far the best known species is the Loquat, E. japonica, grown for its edible fruit.

Eriobotrya species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Hypercompe hambletoni.
