Gender of nouns

Is there some way of determining if words are masculine or feminine or do you literally have to memorize the gender of every French word you learn? I feel like maybe there is some rule I missed some where? Like how did someone decide that apple or orange was masculine or feminine?

WOW! Lots of info to look at! Thanks, I know what I will be doing this weekend!

By the way, under a persons post, there are arrows, facing up and down, like this: ^ v

I am assuming these are this sites version of like and dislike, or thumbs up and thumbs down?
