English translation:Leccino olives
Explanation:
"Leccino" is a type of variety of olive, (as are Moraiolo, Frantoio, Mission, Manzanillo, and Pendolino, to name just a few), so the word doesn't need to be translated (although you might add a note).

This info from the California Olive Oil Council, at the web site below.

PS -- "Ilex" refers to members of the holly family, and related shrubs and trees (for instance, "Quercus ilex" is "holly oak"). In Italian it's "leccio" (and an ilex or holly grove is a "lecceto"), not to be confused with "leccino." Salute!
