In brief: 6 to 8 weeks

Usually at a minimum 6 to 8 weeks but pain swelling persists longer, but must have the correct diagnosis.

In brief: A few weeks

Toe fractures can take a long time to heal, partly because it's very hard to immobilize the bones.
But be patient, it will heal. Take it easy, no running or kicking until you are healed on an x--ray!
