commercial growers usually have seeds that are not available for the home grower. you could put the varietal name in your search bar and see if any seed merchant offers them.

SBG has hit on the answer. It would seem that it is a variety that is only available to commercial growers and could only be grown under licence from the breeders. They are probably F1's so no use saving the seed.

why not save the seeds from your toms and grow your own

It is an F1, so it won't come true from seed. Though the characteristics of the seedlings will be interesting, your chances of getting an exact match are pretty slim.
