Caricaceae are a family of flowering plants in the order Brassicales, found primarily in tropical regions of Central and South America and Africa. They are short-lived evergreen pachycaul shrubs or small trees growing to 5–10 m tall. Many bear edible fruit.

Based on molecular analyses, this genus has been proposed to have originated in Africa in the Late Cenozoic era ~65 mya. The dispersal from Africa to Central America occurred ~35 million years ago, possibly via ocean currents from the Congo delta. From Central America, the species reached South America 19-27 million years ago.

The family comprises six genera and about 34-35 species:

  • Carica – one species Carica papaya (Papaya), Americas
  • Cylicomorpha – two species, Africa
  • Horovitzia - one species, Mexico
  • Jacaratia – eight species, Americas
  • Jarilla – three species, Americas
  • Vasconcellea – 20 species, Americas
