Which one is OK and natural? Or, what would you say? After all this time, it still hasn't spoiled. Despite all this time, it still hasn't spoiled. Despite all this time passed, it still hasn't spoiled.

The usual phrase is "after all this time." As far as I know, the preposition "despite" isn't used with time expressions, but it can be used with nouns or -ing verbs. It's also possible to use it with a noun clause and an adverb. For example, "Despite what I did yesterday, my boss didn't get mad at me." :)
