Frank Sinatra’s love of Maui onions appears to have raised their visibility and status on the mainland. Sinatra and Tom Selleck took a break during filming of a “Magnum P.I.” episode atop a Bethel Street building. Sinatra, a longtime fan of the show, played a retired New York detective who comes to Hawaii on a murder case and eventually teams up with Selleck.
