As long as it's capped completely.... a couple of thousand years.
yaaaaa... about 85% capped
it depends on the 15% that is not capped. if almost ready to cap lots of time if it is nectar it will not keep.
I have most of a shallow in my kitchen from harvest last fall and it looks fine to extract this coming week. Please note that in my location I don't have to worry about hive beetles and wax moths. If those were a concern I'd have a mess to clean up instead of honey to extract!
