In Pernambuco, a State in northeast Brazil  jaboticabas do not grow well as in the States of Minas Gerais and São Paulo. Reason is the warm climate of Pernambuco . In Pernambuco there is no jabo with this name. Maybe  an overseas collector who picked up jaboticabas  whilst in Pernambuco  and took them to his country labeled them with this name.
