The Muntingiaceae are a family of flowering plants, belonging to the rosid order Malvales. The family consists of three monotypic genera: Dicraspidia, Muntingia and Neotessmannia. They are woody plants of the tropical regions of America. The older Cronquist System places these genera in the Tiliaceae family. The type species (Muntingia calabura) is widely introduced in tropical regions, because of its edible fruit.
