Originated from a cross of Red-Leaved Paradise (B.9) x Bud. 13-14 at the Michurinsk College of Agriculture, former Soviet Union. Bud. 490 is a semi-vigorous rootstock (similar in size and productivity to MM.106) that roots easily from hardwood cuttings or in the stoolbed. The inner bark is red. Trees on Bud. 490 are moderately precocious and produce some burrknots and few root suckers. Bud. 490 is moderately resistant to collar rot and fire blight and requires no tree support. It is reported to be cold tolerant. It has been tested to a limited extent in North America.
