I don't understand why the cache is accumulated between the tests. I thought one of the axioms of unit testing is that the tests should not affect each other.

Couldn't find anything that explains why it's done this way but it seems a bit strange. Anybody know if there's a reason or is this a reason for me to upload a patch to Django code?

from django.test import TestCase
from django.core.cache import cache
from django.conf import settings

class MyTests(TestCase):
    def tearDown(self):
        assert settings.CACHE_BACKEND == 'locmem:///'
        [cache.delete(key) for key in cache._cache.keys()]

Update for newer versions of Django, use cache.clear()
