    Sugar content is primary importance in determining the quality of melon fruit. Quality melon Nganjuk region, Madiun and Ngawi when glucose levels decreased to below ten (10) Brix, so that does not taste sweet and not durable to be stored. Departing from low sugar levels, which pushed to find reasons for the decrease in sugar content of fruit in terms of land characteristics and environmental characteristics. The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics of land to do with the chemical characteristics of fruit, especially melons melon fruit sugar content. Materials are. (1) The soil layer 0-20 cm of the soil surface. Soil samples from the center area are Nganjuk melons, Madiun and Ngawi. Each regional center of the melon is represented by six (6) observation point on land characteristics. Observations on land characteristics include. Climate data from the station or the nearest local climatology, physical characteristics, chemical and biological soil, and soil geomorphology. Climate data and geomorphological data useful for determining the level of land suitability for crop melons, while data on land characteristics useful for identification of land quality and soil fertility degree to which the modeling of the relationship with the Chemical characteristics of melonfruit. The results of this study indicate that nearly all regions Region. Ngawi, Madiun and Nganjuk there is a limiting factor content of C-Organic and low potassium. There is a relationship between sugar levels content and land characteristics, especially with potassium content. Key words: land characteristics, sugar content, melon
