The olive tree, its cultivation, the olive fruit products and their use coincides with Greece’s long history. The ancient and famous legend holds that Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, blessed the city that was named after her with the most precious gift, that of an olive tree. The Athenians soon realized the importance of this divine gift and created a sacred grove of olive trees dedicated to their patroness Athena. This sacred grove contributed to the wealth and prosperity of the city and supported its population in hard times.
In Sparta, archaeologists have unearthed findings showing that the fruit of the olive tree has been a key component in the diet of the local people since prehistoric times. The climate conditions in the region have favored the expansion of olive cultivation since antiquity. In the Spartan tradition olive oil became the synonym of health and longevity. Ancient Sparta’s athletes and warriors used oil to rub their bodies.Kreenes Ultra Premium: A Gift of Life from Greece,
