Here is a picture of the pollen  in it's plastic bags before they get in their paper bag with the name of the cross.
The paper bags should be put in alphabetical order in the deep freezer, so it takes just a second to find the one you want, and avoid defreezing the whole lot in the process!

yes, at least a week, even two.
But, as soon as they are dry, i usually put them in mini plastic bags, then into the deep freezer when i want to keep them longer!
They keep better dry: if you freeze also water with the pollen, when you de-freeze it, usually the pollen gets soggy. So frozen dry is safer.

...These boxes are very handy, you can write with a pencil in the bottom , they easily pile up as you crop, then they just need to be spread in order to let the pollen dry.
