Olympia is the name!

During an international conference in Ancient Olympia, a new variety of local olives called locally "Chotaitiki" was named "Olympia" to honor the ancient town of Peloponnese, Greece. The olive groves that produce this rare olive variety are said to be very old (up to 1500 years).

The olives have a special substance called "eleokanthali" that has been proved to have medical benefits.
