Turon (Philippine Spanish: turón de banana or turón plátano), also known as lumpiyang saging (Tagalog, banana lumpia), is a Filipino snack made of thinly sliced bananas (preferably saba or Cardaba bananas) and a slice of jackfruit, dusted with brown sugar, rolled in a spring roll wrapper and fried. Other fillings can also be used, including sweet potato, mango, cheddar cheese and coconut.

Turón is a popular street food amongst Filipinos.[1] These are usually sold along streets with banana cue,[2] camote cue, and maruya.

In Malabon, the term "turón" instead refers to a fried, lumpia-wrapper-enveloped dessert filled with sweet mung bean, while valencia is used for the banana-filled variety.
