It's so variable! The problem is not just drying out, but also mold or brown spots. You can trim them, but there's a limit. Shelf life can be days, or it can be months.

They'll tell you when their days are numbered. As long as they are still plump and crisp w/no visible sprouting. Even if they've sprouted a little, just cut open and remove the germ (sprout).

I agree with the recommendations above. I usually keep my garlic in the freezer in zip top bags. They thaw in no time on the counter.

The thing about the green germ/sprout is that it's really bitter. You can buy peeled cloves in a jar for convenience but they go off fairly quickly, so unless you use garlic (and a lot of garlic----say, you have a vampire problem) every day it's not a good purchase.

I usually keep fresh garlic cloves in the fridge. I store unpeeled cloves of garlic it stores 2 – 3 weeks. If you choose a freezer it will keep garlic for up to 10 – 12 months. I got a great help from https://foodgear.org/how..., this site, to how to keep fresh garlic cloves. If you want you can check this link.
