Loquat Leaf

Biological Name: Rosaceae Eriobotryae japonicae

Other Names: Loquat leaf, pi pa ye

Loquat leaf is often used in Chinese herb formulas and syrups to alleviate “lung heat” syndromes. These diseases are usually caused by infections, though they can arise from other causes, such as smoking. The main application of the syrup is coughs, but loquat leaves also are used to alleviate skin disorders of the face, which are often attributed also to lung heat. The loquat grows in semi-tropical climates, and is native to southeast China, mainly Guangzhou.

It is now cultivated in California and Florida. The Chinese name for the loquat, pipa, comes from the appearance of the leaves, which are shaped similar to that of a stringed Chinese instrument (referred to as a Chinese lute) called the pipa (pee-pah).
