    Abstract: Generally, the diameter of organic melon fruit relatively short (the fruit is small), weight of fruit just as big as 1.25-1.49 kg only, while weight of inorganic melon fruit can reach 2-3 kg. The research was conducted by experiment method with the aim to enhance quality of the organic melon fruit. Experiment I is: N, P and K fertilizer solution concentration as main plot (0, 20, 30, and 40 g L-1 ) and dose of cow manure fertilizer as sub plot (0, 10, 15, and 20 ton ha -1 ) (there are 16 treatment combinations). Experiment II is kinds of dung as main plot (chicken, cow, and goat) and dose of fertilizer as sub plot (20, 25, and 30 ton ha -1 ) (there are 9 treatment combinations). Experiment III is dose of cow manure fertilizer as main plot (15, 20, 25, and 30 ton ha -1 ) and gibberellins concentration as sub plot (0, 30, 60, and 120 ppm) and (there are 16 treatment combinations). Each of the treatment combination replícated 3 times. The result showed that chicken, cow, and goats manure can be used in organic cultivation of melons, and cow manure has the highest potential. The role of the dose is relatively low in plant growth, but to improve the quality of fruit need dose of 10-15 tons ha -1 . The addition of inorganic NPK fertilizer solution or use of gibberellins can increase growth and fruit quality of melon (the used of gibberellins are recommended).
