They produced less, so it doesn't get exported much.  

According to Whole Foods Market Nyon: A small, jet black, shiny olive variety from southern France, this one will romance you. Nyon olives have a mild, salty bitterness and are usually dry-cured and packed in olive oil.
JK says, "Nyon olives are buttery."
